Former Chairman Remembered
Farmer, entrepreneur and community worker Ian Bertram took on tasks that other people would pass over, with a relentless energy and an unflappable sense of purpose. In 2010, Mr Bertram was invited to be the chairman of the community-based sustainable energy company, GV Energy. A friend and colleague of 30 years, Geoff Lodge described Mr Bertram as systematic, dogmatic, and tireless when engaged in his work.
